First Train Stations in Japan
In 1903 tracks were laid connecting the first two train stations in Japan. The Kagoshima people are very proud of all that the Satsuma clan accomplished over 100 years ago. Yet the "shinkansen" or bullet train only reached Kagoshima last year. The trains eventually spread out to all of Japan and are probably the primary means of transportation, even though more and more people are driving cars frequently on roads that appear to be designed for pedestrians.
